I was amazed when I recently first saw the capabilities of Paraview Web. I decided I’ll do my best to develop some web-based applications that improve visualization/data processing workflows at my company.
However, after struggling a little bit to compile/install ParaView Web with NodeJS, I decided to take a step back and learn a bit more of the basics of web development before jumping into such complex code.
I have 10+ years experience developing scientific software for desktops and clusters, but never programmed a single website or web application in my life.
Sorry for the rather newbie question, but I hope the answer helps other programmers like me; with little to no web experience.
